1980s Squier Japan Telecaster Electric Guitar

It says Squier on the headstock but this is a FujiGen-made Telecaster and so it's essentially the same creature that became a Fender Japan Telecaster within a year or two's time. It uses an original, Fullerton-sourced, 6-saddle bridge and appears to be stock save the strap buttons (strap locks) and the pickups, which are some sort of Fralin set and sound excellent.

We've just given it a fret level/dress, restring, and setup. It plays bang-on and has a '60s-style neck profile with a steeper radius and 1 5/8" nut width. It's definitely "a good one" and has the classic looks to boot -- maple on white on yellowed-blonde. FujiGen definitely nailed it on the classic late-'60s Fender feel and it feels "like home" to any of us used to that neck profile and vibe.

Repairs included: a fret level/dress, restring, minor soldering repairs, and setup.
